Green Things Farm.An organic farm in Ann Arbor.5.5 miles from my home, so close that I could ride my bike~ and I often did.(Until the summer heat reminded me to lighten up a bit!)I work 2 days a week, 4 hours each day and I’ve learned a TON.Most of which is the importance of buying food from your local farmer.
Customer appreciation weekend takes place in mid July, this year, July 13 & 14 from 12-4pm. After the holiday on the 4thand a time when people want to come out and talk, have some hot dogs, grilled by us, and chat it up with the owners, glassblowers, and sales staff of the studio.
I really try to make one-of-a-kind mugs for the gallery so that people can see all the possibilities that are available. Color is the biggest component. After that the shape of the mug and volume are determined. The handle is really important because a nice proper sized handle makes a comfortable mug. The foot or the bottom of the mug is a decision as well and having 6 or 7 different styles in the gallery makes it easy to decide.
